About a month ago, Sony introduced the 50mm f/1.2 G Master lens and got many Sony shooters excited. So excited, in fact, that the company now claims it can’t manage all the demand. So you’ve guessed it right – you’re going to have to wait a little longer to have your 50mm f/1.2 delivered.
On its website, Sony Japan writes (Google-translated):
Thank you for your continued support of Sony products.
The lens FE 50mm F1.2 GM “SEL50F12GM” for the digital single-lens camera α [E-mount] released on April 23, 2021 (Friday) has received orders that greatly exceeded our expectations, and is a product. It may take some time before delivery.
We are currently making every effort to meet the needs of our customers, so please wait for a while.
The Sony FE 50mm f/1.2 G Master lens was originally scheduled for shipping in May. On B&H, 13 May is still listed as the shipping date, but it might change. There’s currently no information on how much the shipping will be delayed, but we will update the article if we hear more.
